Streit was offered a one-year contract by the Canadiens, according to Marc de Foy of the Journal de Montreal.

EDGE Analysis

In offering a one-year deal worth $1.5 million to the 39-year-old Streit, Canadiens general manager Marc Bergevin is protecting himself in the event he's unable to re-sign Andrei Markov.

Streit was not among the Penguins' eight protected skaters for the Vegas expansion draft.

EDGE Analysis

Considering Streit logged just 19 regular season and three playoff games for the Pens this year, it shouldn't come as a surprise they chose not to protect him from being selected by the Golden Knights. The 39-year-old was an emergency pick-up in order to provide coverage for a banged up blue line. General manager Jim Rutherford could decide to re-sign the defenseman, but that determination likely won't come until after July 1 when free agency begins.

Streit likely will make his 2017 postseason debut if fellow defenseman Justin Schultz's (undisclosed) injury turns out to be long term, the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

EDGE Analysis

Pittsburgh has been perpetually banged up on the back line, making forced lineup adjustments along the way, but losing a two-way playmaker like Schultz for any amount of time could pose a serious problem for the Pens during these conference finals. After all, he's averaged 21:09 of ice time -- including 3:48 on the power play -- since the quarterfinal series against the Blue Jackets. Streit could step in as a 39-year-old with 31 playoff games under his belt, though that could always change if Trevor Daley (lower body) gets healthy soon.

Streit tallied just his second assist in his last eight games Thursday against Ottawa.

EDGE Analysis

Despite cooling off, the 39-year-old has scored one goal and five assists in 11 games for Pittsburgh. In fact, all five of his helpers have come on the power play. With the team's defensive corps short-handed for the foreseeable future, Streit figures to continue seeing plenty of opportunity on the man advantage.

Streit (lower body) will play in Wednesday's game against the Flyers, Jason Mackey of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

EDGE Analysis

Considered a game-time call for the evening, the blueliner will indeed give it a go, making him a lineup option in season-long and daily lineup. He should resume his role on the second power-play unit and will pair with Chad Ruhwedel for the contest, looking to add to his four points in six games since joining the Penguins.

Streit (lower body) will be a game-time decision against his former team -- the Flyers -- Wednesday, Jason Mackey of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

EDGE Analysis

An encouraging sign for fantasy owners, Jason Mackey also reported that Streit took part in special teams practice on the Pens' second power-play unit at Wednesday's game-day skate. If he is given the all clear, the veteran will bridge the heated rivalry among Pennsylvania's hockey hotbeds and will likely pair up alongside Chad Ruhwedel.

Although the Pens haven't officially updated Streit's (lower body) status, GM Jim Rutherford offered some potentially encouraging news. "The only information I have on him is that it will be determined at the skate Wednesday whether or not he plays," Rutherford told DK on Pittsburgh Sports.

EDGE Analysis

Streit was hospitalized after blocking a shot Monday in Calgary but Rutherford's comments seem to indicate that the defenseman might not be too far away from returning. The 39-year-old has scored one goal and three assists (all on the power play) in six games with Pittsburgh.

Streit sustained a lower-body injury Monday against the Flames, Pens Inside Scoop reports.

EDGE Analysis

Streit skated just 5:08 in the contest before blocking a shot that forced his departure. The Penguins are already down three regular defensemen thanks to various injuries (Kris Letang, Trevor Daley and Olli Maatta), so -- despite their favorable position in the standings -- they can ill afford to lose the newly acquired veteran, who had recorded four points in his first five games with Pittsburgh prior to Monday. Look for further specifics regarding his status in advance of Wednesday's tilt with Philadelphia.

Streit recorded two power-play assists during Wednesday's win over Winnipeg.

EDGE Analysis

Through three games with the Penguins, the veteran defenseman has two multi-point outings for a goal and three assists. His presence on the power play has been notable, as all three helpers came with the man advantage. Pittsburgh is the highest-scoring team in the league, and Streit is still capable of moving the offensive needle. With Kris Letang (upper body) out of action, Streit checks out as a serviceable fantasy asset in most seasonal formats, and he's currently a target-worthy bargain in daily contests.
